    That’s exactly what I need! However, slightly perturbed that AC/DC didn’t make the cut.

    True dat. IF YOU WANT BLOOD deserves an honorable mention.

    I’m so glad someone else has that BEP song on their list. I’m always nervous someone at the gym will glance over at my phone and see it playing.

    Another good, fast one: “Because We Can” from Moulin Rouge.

    Hells yeah! Oh believe me, there are several tracks I did not include on this list due to pure shame. Fictional band Infant Sorrow’s The Clap. Sum 41’s Fat Lip. I’m not to be trusted when it comes to musical taste. I’ve got a Lindsay Lohan song on my playlist, for God’s sake.
